    Alright, maybe time for u guys in America to try out Spotify a bit more?
    Syncs right to your phones, and honestly has almost all the music i listen too. Even stuff mostly kept at soundcloud.

    "Syncs right to your phones, and honestly has almost all the music i listen too."

    That's the key here, the music YOU listen to. Not everyone has the same taste in music and I can honestly say that Spotify cannot satisfy my music needs, which mostly consist of progressive house (i.e. lots of mixes done by individual DJs, of which most have no deals with music companies) and different sub-genres of metal (black, death and trash metal being the main ones).

    If you listen to mainstream music, then yeah, Spotify is definitely worth it. And of course, I'm not trying to say that "mainstream" music is worse - music is purely a preference and shall not be argued about.

    It's not worse then other streaming services though, it has the same or larger selection, and you can sync your mp3s with it over WiFi to your phone too, though other solutions might be more suitable for some. Other solutions can take your own rips/warez to the cloud too. All things has their limits and (hopefully) their strengths. Obviously you don't rip illegal songs of Youtube with Spotify. Hard to find music on Spotify and other store front like services too. Reply

    This program sounds really cool but most of my devices are *not* running Mac OSX. Are there any similar programs for Windows/iOS/Android?

    PS I see in the comments that someone recommended Spotify, which is all well and good... but the cool thing about 'iCloud' that seems to make it different (and potentially better) is that it searches through a huge variety of music sources. Also, not having to (ever) pay a monthly fee sounds very nice!
